PCs Reshape Computing Landscape
the newest technological sensation, Tablet PCs will revolutionize
the way computers interact with all human endeavors. Offering
true mobility thru wireless computing, health-care professionals,
field engineers, sales representatives, insurance adjusters,
real estate appraisers, and real estate agents, are just a
few of the many professions that will benefit by the flow
of information and communications.
TAP 'N TALK® technology,
users will interact with a Tablet PC platform through speech,
ink, and touchscreen recognition. Operating a specialized
version of the Microsoft Windows XP operating system, Tablet
PCs allow the user to quickly and easily change the screen
orientation. Users can switch from portrait to landscape modes
as often as needed to meet the changing work environment and
scenario requirements. As an example, although a Microsoft
Word document lends itself to portrait mode, a Microsoft PowerPoint
presentation, an Excel spreadsheet, or a Medical X-Ray, may
be better viewed in landscape mode. Handwritten documents
can be created using electronic ink for subsequent conversion
into text or reference retrieval.
USB, serial, FireWire, external VGA, keyboard, and PS/2, ports,
these powerhouse PCs weighing in at 3 pounds, pack the power
and punch needed to run today's most resource hungry Windows
applications. Slim and lightweight, Tablet PCs will easily
dock at the desktop to gain full access to a large screen
monitor, a full-size keyboard, and a mouse. Ideally, Tablet
PCs will be used by professionals who spend much of their
time away from their desk. In a health-care environment for
example, doctors and nurses will be able to move between examination
rooms taking full advantage of software such as Opt!®
Professional PRMS. Processing speech and stylus
data input, Tablet PCs will efficiently and effortlessly create
a comprehensive charting and patient encounter report.
attached to a wireless network, Tablet PCs will act as digital
clipboards giving medical practitioners access to medical
reference materials, dictating observations, checking for
drug interactions, and transmitting prescriptions to pharmacies.
At the point of care, when a doctor is accessing patient records,
x-rays can easily be displayed on the PC tablet.
PCs could also be used in waiting rooms, allowing patients
to fill out medical history forms electronically. Additionally,
bilingual patient education is another potential use for tablet
PCs, where doctors can use anatomy applications to show patients
the origin of their complaints and help them understand their
problems and the suggested treatments.
thin ergonomic designs, Tablet PCs with long battery life,
copious amounts of RAM memory, large hard drives, and screen
resolutions that rival the LCD platform today, add user functionality
to run even the most resource hungry Windows applications.
